Cool...not since the old Soviet Union collapsed has an American capital ship sortied into the Norwegian Sea.

Having been through exercises in the Aleutians I can attest to the the brutal conditions of operating in such an environment...not an easy thing on men or material.

As far as the GIUK Gap and greater Norwegian Sea area is concerned, we've never left...in a below sea level measure any way.
